Altair's new 2021.1 simulation software release is here! This significant update includes all major CFD solutions under a single license, expanded end-to-end electronic system design capability, and seamless access to the cloud. It enhances the value of Altair Units, Altair’s licensing model, enabling customers to develop a wide range of products more profitably.
Unparalleled Breadth of CFD Solutions Under a Single License
Altair® CFD™ is a cost-effective alternative to purchasing individual tools from multiple software vendors by delivering all major CFD solutions under a single license including:
This ensures engineering teams always have the most appropriate technology available for each application, reducing modeling and product development times.
Altair CFD solution helps GAC to keep the leading position among competitors in large-scale CFD simulation technology and low drag vehicle design.

Expanded End-to-end Electronic System Design Capability
Altair’s electronic system design toolset has a new thermal management workflow to enhance the design of electronic devices. In addition to the existing Altair® SimLab™ workflows for structural stress, vibration, and drop-test performance, product engineers can now ensure the cooling of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and complete systems to prevent overheating, product reliability issues, or expensive late-stage redesigns.
We can quickly optimize designs and keep up with the extremely fast pace of the consumer electronics industry. Without this tool, it would be incredibly difficult to bring a working product to market in a timely manner.
